This is a biblical scenario which the Pharaoh/Cleopatra creators did not make use of.
It is the story of Joseph. Read Genesis 39 to 50 of the bible to find out.
For those who didnt have a bible,and are not Christians/ Catholics here's a brief exerpt of the story:
Joseph was brought before the pharaoh and pharaoh told him he dreamt of 7 fat cows and 7 thin cows. The thin cows ate the fat ones. He also dreamt of 7 thin heads of grain swallowing 7 fat heads of grain.
Joseph told him there will be 7 years of plenty, when the Nile floods are perfect and yields are abundant.
But this, he warned, will be followed by 7 years of famine.
Pharaoh was pleased with Joseph, so he made him governor ( Vizier) over Egypt ( taking into account that he predicted two dreams earlier, when he had'nt met pharaoh yet).
For those reading this passage, as Joseph the Vizier, challenge yourself to complete the task of storing food and distributing it to people during the famine. Take part in this biblical epic that is as excting as the Exodus!
Remember to read the text that accompanies the savegame scenario.
